TO THE REVISED EDITION 

n <g o ,3 



WHEN THE MUSIC LOVERS' ENCYCLOPEDIA 
was first compiled it was Rupert Hughes' effort to make 
it the most nearly complete desk reference work of its 
kind. In this he succeeded admirably. Time has, however, 
changed the whole world gallery of musicians and music lovers 
and we have therefore invited the outstanding authority in the 
field, Mr. Deems Taylor, to work with Mr. Russell Kerr, of 
Musical America, in the present complete revision of the book 
which has been the standard desk reference book on Music for 
nearly fifty years. 

We wish to make particular acknowledgment to Simon and 
Schuster for permission to reprint THE MONSTER by Deems 
Taylor, an excerpt from OF MEN AND Music, and to acknowl- 
edge that RECOLLECTIONS OF My LAZY CHILDHOOD by Maurice 
Ravel is copyrighted by Opera Mundi, Paris. For permission to 
reprint a short passage from THE MAGIC MOUNTAIN by Thomas 
Mann we make acknowledgment to Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., New 
York, and Martin Seeker and Warburg, Ltd., London. For the 
permission to quote from THE STORY OF Music by W. J. Hen- 
derson we make acknowledgment to Longmans, Green & Co. 

We have included the synopses of ninety operas. These, be- 
cause of exigencies of space, represent the barest outline of plot. 
We therefore encourage the reader to refer to the complete li- 
brettos (in English) available from the following music pub- 
lishers : 

Chas, E. Burden for Carmen, Lucia di Lammermoor, Hrodi- 
ade, The Tales of Hoffmann; Oliver Ditson for Mefistofcle,

INTRODUCTION 

By Deems Taylor 



ONE OF MY EARLY recollections is that of poring de- 
lightedly over the pages of my father's encyclopaedia. 
It was entitled, as I recall, Chambers' Library of Uni- 
versal Knowledge, and had been published, in several volumes, 
some time in the early seventies. My father had acquired it as 
a young man. I mention it here because of a phrase from it that 
still sticks in my memory. It occurred in the course of the article 
on appendicitis, conveying the information that the only remedy 
for this malady was "the application of leeches to the abdomen." 
Which statement is, I think, a fairly vivid illustration of the 
reason why it is advisable, from time to time, to issue revised edi- 
tions of reference works. Not, I hasten to add, that the earlier 
editions of the Music Lovers* Encyclopedia contained such howlers 
as the one I have quoted. Music is a vaguer and at the same time 
more exact science than medicine. Its laws may be more in- 
tuitive than rational, but they are less liable to repeal. An elder 
generation of musicologists seldom needs to blush in the presence 
of its juniors. 

None the less this work has needed revision in order to repair, 
not its mistakes, but its omissions. Lamentable as these omissions 
were, they are pardonable, in view of the fact that the events that 
should have been chronicled had not yet occurred. Musical his- 
tory has moved fast during the past fifty years. In 1903, the 
year the first edition of this book appeared, Verdi had been dead 
just two years. Giacomo Puccini had finished his sixth opera, 
based on John Luther Long's play, "Madame Butterfly*' and was 
arranging for its production at La Scala in Milan; Richard 
Strauss had started work on an operatic version of Oscar Wilde's 
Salome; and Claude Debussy had just written to his publishers 
that he was busy with a trio of symphonic sketches to be called 
La Mer* Arnold Schonberg, who was later to horrify the con- 
ventional musical world with his harmonic theories, had not yet 
composed his pleasant but innocuous "Verklarte Nacht" ; Jan 
Sibelius had published his first symphony two years before; and 

vii 



INTRODUCTION 

a young Russian named Igor Stravinsky was studying orches- 
tration with Rimsky-Korsakov. 

Even in 1912, when the second edition appeared, Strauss's ">& 
Rosenkavalier" existed only as a mass of sketches ; Montemezzi's 
"UAmore Dei Tre Re" was promised for the following year, but 
no one had heard it. Maurice Ravel's "Daphnis et Chloe" had 
just had its first performance, in Paris, by the Diaghileff Ballet 
Russe. ' The young Russian, Stravinsky, was putting the finishing 
touches to another ballet for Diaghileff, "Le Sacre du Printemps" 
that was destined to make musical history. Jan Sibelius had just 
published his fourth symphony. Phonographs were using a me- 
chanical pickup ; the sound-film was unthought-of , and radio was 
a dream. 

Hence the need for this new edition of a work that has been 
proving its usefulness for many years. As in the earlier editions, 
:t is divided into two main sections: a dictionary of musical 
terms, and a biographical dictionary of musicians. This seems 
to me to be a sensible and convenient differentiation. One is not 
likely to be anxious for information concerning "Mendelssohn" 
and "metronome" at the same instant. The bulk of the revision, 
naturally, has been done in the biographical section; and in this 
department the revised edition of the Music Lovers? Encyclopedia 
may venture to claim to be tbe,most completely up-to-date work 
in this or any other country. Eight hundred new names have been 
added, making the chronology and necrology complete up to 1954* 
and encompassing a completely new "Supplementary List of Mod- 
ern Composers.*' 

As a rule, biographical dictionaries grade musicians according 
to their purely academic importance. This practice results in the 
inclusion and over-emphasising of many persons whose work is 
no actual, important contribution to music as a living art. In this 
edition we have attempted to indude new personalities that are 
playing an important part in the modern world of music, not only 
in the field of composition, but also in that of production and per- 
formance* 

I say "we." As a matter of fact, the merits of the revised bio- 
graphical dictionary are almost entirely due to the extraordinarily 
conscientious and expert labours of Mr. Russell Kerr, of the staff 
of the New York Musical America, and whose share in the pro- 
duction of this work is hereby gratefully acknowledged* 



INTRODUCTION ix 

The charts and tables of the earlier editions have been retained 
and revised. They should be useful, particularly the table show- 
ing the pronunciation of the various letters of the alphabet as they 
occur in sixteen modern languages. There may be a similar chart 
published elsewhere; if there is, I am unfamiliar with it. Like- 
wise retained, verbatim, is the prefatory An Introduction to Music, 
by this book's first editor, Rupert Hughes. Mr. Hughes, who is 
chiefly known to the world as a novelist, is a musical amateur in 
the finest sense of the word, a music-lover who has studied and 
practiced the art of music all his life, purely for the fun of it, 
To realise that profound scholarship can be coexistent with an 
amateur standing, you have only to read his chapter. Naturally 
the science of music has progressed. The past quarter of a 
century has seen the development of theories concerning harmony, 
counterpoint, melody, and rhythm that were unthinkable in 1903. 
Nevertheless the fundamentals of music remain constant, and al- 
most any literate and intelligent lay music-lover should be able to 
obtain the' foundation of a musical education by reading this 
Introduction to Music. Written nearly fifty years ago, it remains 
a sound and useful little treatise. 

The section entitled Stories of the Operas originally contained 
synopses of the plots of sixty operas in the standard repertoire. 
Since the last edition of this book was published, a few have so 
definitely joined the limbo of forgotten things that there seemed 
to be no further use in including them. They have, accordingly, 
been dropped from the present roster. "In revenge/' as the 
French say, we have added the stories of thirty-four additional 
operas that have been either added or restored to the repertoire 
during the past twenty years. 

One of the most admired features of the Music Lovers 9 Ency- 
clopedia has been its series of contributed essays by eminent 
musical authorities, discussing various branches of music and the 
lives of famous composers. The best of these have been retained, 
and many more added. Moreover, instead of being scattered al- 
phabetically through the dictionary sections of the book, they have 
been brought together in two special sections of their own, to the 
great enhancement of their readability and accessibility, 

"The marriage of completeness with conciseness," writes Rupert 
Hughes in his preface to the first edition of this book, "is a hard 
knot to tie." That statement has lost none of its truth. It is 



x INTRODUCTION 

manifestly hopeless, in a single volume, to cover every phase of 
music in the detail that is offered by the great musical encyclo- 
paedias and the countless biographies of individual composers that 
have appeared within the past decade. On the other hand, we 
offer discussions of more subjects, biographies of more musicians, 
than any other single volume that I know, Our definitions and 
biographical sketches may be brief, but they present the main facts ; 
and they are, so far as is humanly possible to make them so, ac- 
curate. It is our hope that this new edition of the Music Lovers' 
Encyclopedia may continue to be what it has always been, a store- 
house of information to the layman, and a useful reminder to the 
expert.

AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 
FOR THE UNINITIATED 

A. Free Translation of its Technicalities into Untedhnical Language 

(especially for those who do not Read Music and 

do not Care to Study it). 

By Rupert Hughes 



THERE is almost as much humbug about the mysteries of 
music as there was about the oracles of Delphi. And the 
vast majority of music-lovers have as meek and uninquiring 
a dread of the inner art and science of composition as the old pagans 
had of priestcraft. 

There is no deeper mystery about the tools and the trade of music 
than about those of any other carpentry and joinery. It is far 
easier for some people to write a melody than to drive a nail straight. 
But anybody who will earnestly try, can learn to do the one as 
easily as the other. And there are thousands of professional com- 
posers who ought to be earning honest livings driving nails home 
instead of starving to death dishonestly driving audiences home. 

The one mystery of music is the one mystery of all art and aU 
other human intercourse personality. Everybody can write a 
novel or a play. Almost everybody does. So everyone can write 
a sonata or a string-quartet. But the number of those who possess 
the spark (divine, prenatal, accidental or howsoever secured) the 
spark of magnetism, felicity, and eloquence, that number is small 
and is no more superabundant than on the day when little Hermes 
found the old tortoise-shell and made the first harp out of it. 

The reason the Editor is desirous of taking the veil from certain 
of the arcana of music is not that he wishes to increase the number 
of composers Heaven forbid I The one object is to increase the 
number of those who will listen to music intelligently and know 
just what they are hearing, and pretty well why they like this and 
dislike that. For like and dislike by pure instinct are relics of mere 
animalism. 

The open highway to the enjoyment of so-called classic music 
is the hearing of it in large quantities. There is a short cut for 
those who lack the time or the inclination for this long training 
and it is by wav of learning the elements of musical form. For it 



2 AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 

is the crystallisation of human passion into some graceful and power- 
ful form that gives music long life. Many wretched pedants think 
that the number of forms is limited; but this is a fallacy that is dis- 
proved every day. 

Some form, however, is as necessary in music as in sculpture. 
And though the number and variety of forms available are as 
infinite and illimitable in music as in sculpture, still some definite 
shape must be in the artist's mind and must be discoverable by an 
unprejudiced, attentive, and educated audience. 

If you do not already know the skeleton that underlies the 
shapely contours and full, fair flesh of melody and harmony, you 
can find some enlightenment in the anatomical lecture that follows, 
provided you will use your own scalpel, and carry out the suggestions 
made. It is not easy to avoid asking the reader to master the 
language and symbols of music, but much that is important can 
be learned from the following, without this long special study, if 
an occasional general truth will be allowed to stand without stating 
its exceptions, and if permission be granted to arrive at certain facts 
in a homely and button-hole manner* 



FIRST, turn to a piano or organ either of these is more 
convenient for illustration than a bow or wind-instrument. 
The highly-organised instrument before you is the result of 
centuries of blind groping in the dark, of unnumbered great failures 
for every little triumph* This is true not only of the mechanism 
of strings, hammers, keys, shape, size and materials of wood and 
metal, but of the veiy music the instrument is intended to send 
out upon the air. 

If you will simply glide your finger-nail along tlie white keys 
you will produce a scale which in itself is the result not only of 
ages of experiment but of the bitterest conflict between scholarly 
musicians, a conflict still raging. But this cannot be discussed 
here. Let us for the present take the instrument as we find it* 

On page 877 of this book will be found a chart of the middle 
portion of the key-board, with the letter-names that have been, 
for convenience* sake, given to the tones marked on it* They are 
easily recognisable by the alternation of the black keys in groups 
of twos and threes. For convenience it might be well to transfer 



AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 3 

the letter-names to the white keys with ink, which will be easily 
washed off with a wet doth. 

The first thing noteworthy about the diagram is that this series 
of letter-names is made of only seven letters and begins over again 
at every eighth tone* This is because the eighth tone (or octave) 
is produced by a string or a column of air making just twice as 
many vibrations as the original tone; the i$th tone by 4 times as 
many, etc., and because each group of seven steps plus the octave 
or 8th step, is built on a uniform model of ratios. The series from 
one letter-name to its reappearance, as from c to c', is subdivided 
into 12 half -steps or semitones. 

This extended series of tones thus divided into octaves is the 
material from which all European and American music is made. 
Save for a few changes and choices made for convenience, this scale 
is based on human nature and physical law, and is not likely to be 
materially altered in our generation- Other fundamental facts 
will be discovered on studying this array of whole-steps (white keys 
except e to f and b to c) and half -steps (from a black key to the 
next white also from b to c and e to f)* 

You will observe that the black keys carry the same names as the 
white keys they interpose between, except that the letter-name 
carries the symbol b ("flat") for the key next below or the symbol 
# ("sharp") for the key next above. The same black key represents 
two white keys. If you are advancing from f to g, for instance, 
the black key between is a half -step above f ; it is said to " sharpen" 
the note, by a half-step (or a "chromatic" degree); if, however, 
you are moving down the scale from g to f the black key is said to 
"flatten" the note g by a half-step (or a " chromatic" degree), 
The same black key serves conveniently then both as f$ (f " sharp ") 
and gb (g " flat ") in our system of music* Tones not thus " chromati- 
cally altered" by a sharp or flat are said to be "natural." If you 
have struck gb or $ and wish to reassert the white key, the tone is 
now called gfc( (g "natural") or f natural. 

The signs, $* s, b's and fcj's are called "sharps, flats and naturals," 
or in general "chromatics*" 

Put your finger at random on any of the white keys and move 
downwards on the white keys in strict succession. You will find 
(if you have a normal ear) that, whatever the tone you sounded 
first, you do not feel a willingness to stop till you reach a certain 
tone or one of itsoctaves. That tone will invariably be one of the 
notes lettered C- 



4 AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 

If now you begin at random on any note and move upward 
keeping to the white keys except in the case of f, for which you 
substitute #, you will find that the letter c no longer gives a sense 
of repose, but that you unconsciously desire and demand one of the 
letters marked g. 

If you run a scale on all the white keys except b, and substitute 
for this note the bb, you will find no resting-place except upon one 
of the letters marked f . 

It is a physical fact, then, that a scale with neither sharps nor 
flats finds its end on the note c; a scale with one sharp (which is 
always f) is based on the note g; a scale with one flat (b flat) is 
based on the note f . Hence one speaks of the scale of C, or of G, 
or of F. 

If you try the substitution of some other single sharp or flat for 
the f sharp or b flat, you will get no satisfactory point of repose at 
all. But by keeping b flat and adding e flat you will find b flat a 
comfortable pausing-place; by adding a flat to the bb and eb, you 
will find a pleasant scale ending on eb. By adding flats in the 
following order (and only in the following order), b, e, a, d, g, c, 
you will construct symmetrical scales reposing always on the next 
to the last flat added. 

By substituting sharps for the natural tones of the original scale 
of C, you build scales satisfactorily only by heaping up sharps m 
the following order, f , c, g, d> a, e, which scales are based respectively 
on the notes g, d, a, e, b, f , the point of repose being in each case a 
half-tone above the last sharp added. 

The scales take their names from the note of repose* A scale 
together with all the chords that can be built upon its notes is 
called a key. The word "key" is often loosdy used (and has been 
used in this essay thus far) to indicate a finger-lever which causes a 
string to sound; this is better called a "digital." From now on the 
word "key" will be used only to designate a group of harmonies 
and a scale belonging to some series of progressions ending on a 
certain note, as the "key of C," the "key of G" (which contains 
f sharp), the "key of D" (which contains f sharp and c sharp), the 
"key of E flat" (which contains b flat, e flat and a flat), and the 
others. 

Since practically every musical composition has some principal key to which 
Jt harks back as its home, however far or often it may wander away, so you 
will find at the beginning of every new line of a >mp<xrftfoa a list of the sharp* 
or flats in that key which predominate*, and these sharps or fiats affect every 



AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 5 

tone not otherwise marked throughout the composition. This group is called 
the key-signature. 

A convenient trick of deciding the key from the number of sharps or flats 
is as follows: where there are flats the key is next to the last flat; where there 
are sharps the key is always the next letter-name above the last sharp. This 
is true of every key except three which are easily remembered, F with one flat, 
G with one sharp, C with neither flats nor sharps. 

Before studying chords, it will be necessary to have another look 
at the diagram of the key-board. We have spoken of half-steps 
and whole steps. But it is possible also (and often desirable) to 
desert the monotonous progression of whole and half -steps and skip 
several steps, as one does in singing a tune. The space covered by a 
skip is called an interval. As geography has its imaginary equator, 
and as geometry has its imaginary lines without breadth and its 
planes without depth, so music has one imaginary interval which 
is no interval at all, but identity. The distance from a note to the 
very same note is called a prime. (This is sometimes useful when 
speaking, for instance, of ab and a#, which are a prime apart, and 
are called primes of each other.) The interval from one white 
digital to the next white digital is called a second, the skip to the 
next but one is called a third (the original note being always num- 
bered one), the skip to the third white digital is called a, fourth, and 
so on; the interval of an eighth being called an octave. Also the 
tones separated by an interval may be called by the names of the 
interval as c and g, or d and a are called fifths; f and d, or g and e 
are called sixths^ etc. 

It will greatly clear the belt of fog we are now going through if 
you will pick out the examples on the key-board. 

The skip from a white to a black digital results in an interval 
which is either greater or less than the nearest interval on the white 
digitals alone. The normal or greater of two similarly named 
intervals as c to e is called a major third, while c to eb is called a 
lesser or minor third. C to eft is greater even than the major and 
is called an augmented third, while c to ebb (" double flat") is a 
diminished third. 

Owing to the elasticity of the letter-names of the notes, an interval 
may be expressed or spelled in different ways, thus c to eb is called 
a minor third, but the very same tones may be called c to d$, an 
augmented second, c-fbb a diminished fourth, b#-d$ a minor third, 
etc. The name of the interval depends upon the key we happen 
to have most in mind at the time. 



6 AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 

It is a curious fact that all major scales are made up of exactly 
the same intervals in the same order. Try over any of the scales 
you wish, and you will find that you move upward by the following 
degrees, in the following order: (i) a whole step, (2) a whole step, 
(3) a half-step, (4) a whole step, (5) a whole step, (6) a whole step, 
(7) a half-step; this last bringing you to the octave of the note you 
started from. 

As earnestly as the soul demands that in the last act of a play 
we shall see the villain sent to prison and the hero and heroine 
locked in each other's arms, so our nature demands this arrangement 
of tones, and when it says half -step or whole step we must move so, 
or leave the key we started in and take up another. 

This explains why there is no black digital between the notes, 
b-c, and e~f : the scale of C, which has no sharps or flats, must 
still have its two half-steps at these points; there is accordingly no 
sharp or flat to be put there. 

n 

"1C "IT TE HAVE now had a bird's-eye view of the natural arrange- 

%/%/ ment of tones, one at a time. But we grow tired of one 

T T note at a time. Four men singing along a midnight street 

or a picnic group riding home in a moonstruck mood fall to singing 

favourite melodies and naturally avoid singing in unison. They 

spontaneously sing in chords. These chords are formed individually 

and succeed one another according to certain fundamental demands 

of the ear just as noticeably as the tones of the scale followed a 

rigid pattern. 

First, let us combine various tones. Take the middle c f and 
strike this tone with the right thumb while another finger strikes 
another tone above, c' and c'# do not sound well together, nor 
yet c' and d'; c' and d'# (or e'b) is not unpleasant, but rather sombre 
(it is indeed a minor harmony, the interval c'-e'b being a minor 
third); c' and e' mate a pure, sweet concord, however. Let us 
keep c' and e 7 and see if we can add another tone, c' + e' + f ' is 
very bad; c' + e' + f'# is also rough; c 7 + e' 4- g' is very com- 
fortable. We have now a three-tone chord, which we may call 
a triad; it happens to be based on the ist, 3d and sth degrees o' 
the scale. 

Let us see if we can build triads on other tones of the C scale. 
We find by trying all the combinations on the note d' , that while 



AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 7 

the triad d'-f'-a' is pleasant but sombre (it is minor), the only clear 
harmony is d'-f'#-a'; but as f$ does not belong to the scale of C, 
we cannot include it. On the note e' we find e'-g'-b', minor, and 
e'-g'^-b' pleasant; this again is outlawed by the g#. On f, how- 
ever, we can form a triad f'-a'-c', which has no foreign chromatics 
and is yet satisfying. On g' we find another triad, g'-b'-d", which 
is native to the C scale and which impels us strongly to substitute 
the e" above for the d", and c" for the b'; when we have done this 
we find we have the chord c'-e'-g' again, only now arranged differ- 
ently, as g'-c"-e". 

If we rearrange the chord on g' differently, as b'^d"-g", we shall 
be impelled to move on to c"-e"-g", which is again our oH riend 
the original triad on c' in its original form. 

This hankering after the original triad on the key-note whenever 
we form a triad on the fifth tone of the scale, is one of the most 
noteworthy and inescapable factors of the chord-world. 

But let us proceed with our triads; on a' we find a'--c"-e" to be 
minor; the major chord b'-d#"-fi#" is doubly ruled out; while 
b'-d"H?" is doubly minor, the fifth (b'-f") being imperfect and the 
third (b'-d") being minor. 

It may be well to state here a bandy way of telling the majority or minority 
of intervals; imagine the lower note to be the key-note; if the upper note would 
occur in a major scale on that key-note its interval is major or diatonic. Thus 
on b: the key of B has 5 sharps, f, c, g, d, and a; both d and f are sharp, there- 
fore b-dl?-f fci has neither interval major. 

Looking back over the chords of the scale of C, we find the only 
major triads to be those on c', f 7 and g'. Since that on g' is so 
urgent in demanding the main triad on C, it is called the dominant 
triad, and the tone g is called the dominant of the scale of C. f 
being beneath it is called subdominant, and its chord the subdominant 
chord; the note c being the foundation note of the whole scale and 
key is called the tonic (tonus being an old name for scale). 

The principal chord-material of any scale is, then, made up of 
the triads on the tonic (or ist)> the dominant (or sth) and the 
subdominant (or 4th). 

Try another Key, F for instance, which has b(?- After testing all 
the combinations on the key-note or tonic f' we find only f'-a"-c"; 
on g* the triad, to be in the key, must be g'-b'b-d" (since bl? is a 
characteristic of the key of F), and this is a minor chord; a'-c"-e" 
Is also minor, but b'k>~d"-f" is a major triad; it is indeed a chord 



8 AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 

on the subdominant. We should expect also to find a major triad 
on the dominant (which, in the key of F, is the tone c), and so we 
find c"-e"-g", which we recognise as the tonic chord of the scale 
of C. But strange to say it offers no repose in its new environment 
with the other chords of the key of F; on the contrary, we have an 
irresistible desire to move on from it to c"-f "-a" (the same as the 
key-chord or tonic chord, f'-a'-c", where we feel at home). The 
two remaining tones of the scale of F offer no satisfactory chords. 

Let us try a key with one sharp in it, that is to say, the key of 
G. Beginning on g' we find after groping about that the only 
chord endurable is g'-b'-d". Building triads on all the other tones> 
a, b, c, d, e and #, we find all of them outlawed as unpleasant or 
at least minor, except two, which again axe on the subdominant 
and the dominant tones of the key of G, and are c"-V-g", and 
d"-f"#-a". 

Taking the sum-total of the chords of these three keys, c, f , and 
g, we have the following chords: (C) e-e-g, f-a-c, g-b-d; (F) f-a-c, 
bb-d~f, c-e-g; (G) g-b-d, c-e-g, d-f$-a. You will see that each 
of the two subordinate keys has two of the chords of the key of C, 
This will be found the case with any group of three keys similarly 
differing only by one sharp or flat, that is to say, having their tonics 
a fifth above or below. On this account the keys based on the 
dominant and subdominant tones of the scale of any given key are 
said to be closely related in the first degree of relationship. 

Add another flat and another sharp, that is, taJke the key of Bb 
and the key of D, and we find the following principal chords: 
(Bb) bb-d-f, eb-g-bb and fr-*-*; (D) d-i$ha, g-b-d, a-c#-e- 
Each of these keys has only one of the chords belonging to the key 
of C. These keys are then related^ but only in the second degree* 

If we add three flats or three sharps and study the keys of Eb 
and A we find the chords (Eb) eb-g~bb, ab-o-eb, bb-d-f; (A) a~c$-e 
d-f#-a> e-g#~bb. None of these chords occur in C, and these keys 
are said to be remote from it. On the other hand comparing Eb 
with the key which had only 2 flats (Bb), we find that Eb has two 
chords belonging to Bb. We also find that A has two of the chords 
belonging to the key with one sharp less, viz., D. We may general- 
ise, then, by saying that the most closely related keys are those 
that differ by one flat or one sharp; the pext nearest relations are 
those differing by two flats or sharps* 



AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 



III 

WHILE we are on the subject of heredity take another point 
of view of this family-tree: 
The tone f, which is four steps above c', is called its 
subdominant; on looking below the note c, we find another f, but 
where it was four tones above, it is five tones below. The key of 
F has added one flat to the key of C. Counting five more whole 
steps down (always counting the note you began on as first) we 
find the note Bb- The scale on that tone has yet another flat, 
two more than C. The tone a full fifth below (Eb) has three flats. 
So we find that moving downward by fifths we add one flat every 
step. Ab has 4, Db has 5, and Gb has 6 flats. 

Now counting upwards from our starting point on c', we find 
that the key based on the fifth (g 7 ) adds one sharp; a fifth above 
G is D, a key with two sharps; a fifth above is A with three sharps, 
a fifth further is E with four sharps, and, as we continue, B with 
five sharps and F$ with six sharps. 

But the key of F# on our piano or organ passes over the very 
same digitals as the key of Gb, is identical with it in fact. We have 
therefore been personally conducted through the grand tour of keys 
by way of the circle of fifths, twelve in all. 

We see therefore that all keys are related, and by careful proce- 
dure in chords a player can move through them all in succession 
with the greatest smoothness. The more modern the composition 
the more widely does it rove from key to key until in some works, 
Wagner's for instance, it is sometimes hard to say just what key 
we are driving at. Instead of keeping to the iron rails of one key 
as earlier music aimed to do, and only leaving the main line at cer- 
tain definite set switches, the art has recently left the hard and 
fast railroad and taken to the pathless waters where, to use Wagner's 
words, it " swims in a sea of tone." 

Some very formal minds grow speedily sea-sick and prefer the 
rigid grooves of the older school. Each one to his tastes. But the 
broadest mind will find pleasure both in land-travel and sea-change, 
insisting only that the composer shall have a plan and know what 
he is about, and aot send his locomotives slashing and sinking in the 
buxom waves, nor drag his yacht gratingly along the hard ground. 
Live and let live is the best art motto. 

One more point is worth noting in this increasingly important 



10 AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 

subject of key-relationships. Reverting for a moment to the key 
of C with its first cousins f and g, we find if we take the tonic triads 
of the three keys and arrange them as follows: 

tonic, 

f-a-c-e-g~b-d. 

I ( L _J 

subdominant doEodnant 

These tones include the complete scale of C. So it will be found of 
every key-scale that it contains within itself the tonic triads of 
itself, of its subdominant and its dominant keys. 

This scale and key principle is further justified by a study of the 
mathematics and physics of music. And the Relationship of Keys 
is given a still greater importance in the more recent writers on the 
theory of music, especially in Riemann's beautiful theory of clang- 
keys (see this word in the Dictionary of Definitions). 



IV 

NOW that we have laboriously picked out our triads, they 
will be found more elastic than they look* Take the triad 
c'-e'-g', the tonic triad of the key of C, which is now said 
to be in the root or first position, c' being the root or generator of 
the triad. We can place the c' uppermost and have e'-g'-c^, 
which is in effect the same chord, though a chord is said to be in- 
verted when any note except its root is in the bass* The second 
inversion places the fifth in the bass, as g'-c"-e" or g-c'-e'-g* or 
g-e'-g'-c". These 3 positions are all we have for a 3-tone chord or 
triad. They can be sounded anywhere on the key-board, however* 

Still another possibility is to repeat some of these letter-names, 
as to sound the triad c'-e'-g' with the right hand and touch the 
tone c an octave below with the left hand; or the tones c-g with the 
left hand and e'-g'-c" with the right- This process called doubling 
may be carried on indefinitely. In a piano-duet, sometimes twenty 
notes or more are struck, all of them repetitions of the inner kernel 
or triad of three notes. 

Strike the left-hand note c first, then the right-hand triad c'~e'~g f 
twice; then strike the note f with the left hand and the subdominant 
triad c'-f'-a' twice, now c and the tonic triad again; then strike g 
with the left hand and the dominant triad b-d'-g' twice; and return 



AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 11 

finally to C and the tonic triad. This little plot in three instalments 
constitutes the whole harmonic accompaniment of many a modern 
popular song and many an old work of classic reputation. 

You can usually tell the key of a song by humming it and picking 
out on the piano or organ its very last note; nine times in ten this 
will be the tonic or homenote of the composition. Suppose this 
to be Bb- How shall one find chords to accompany it? Build a 
major triad on b'b ; it will be b'b-d'-f; build a triad on the dominant 
or fifth (f), f a' c"; build another on the subdominant or fourth 
(eb), e'b-g'-b'b- Play these three notes (Bb, f, eb) with the left 
hand, and use triads with the right, rearranging the three notes in 
any of the inversions ELS they run most smoothly into one another. 
Your ear will help you find the right order of the chords. This will 
serve as a recipe for easy accompaniments. 

More elaborate songs rove through so many keys with so little 
warning that only trained ears and hands can pick out their accom- 
paniment; but it will clear up a deal of the construction of music 
if you will take some simple tune and study out its accompaniment 
on these lines, however painful the operation may be to yourself 
and your neighbors. (Familiar songs requiring only these three 
chords are "The Star Spangled Banner," "God Save the King," 
"Home Sweet Home," "Suwanee River," "Dixie," etc., and most 
of the hymn-tunes.) 



BUT the simple triads grow monotonous, and it is desirable, 
if possible, to enrich them. Take the all important domi- 
nant triad of the key of C (namely, g'-b'-d") and see if we 
can lay another third on top of it like a musical brick. The next 
major third above d" is f"#. But # does not belong to the key 
of C* The minor third f "fc| does beautifully, however, and we have 
a warm rich chord which more than ever goads us on to the tonic 
triad; the g' holding over, the b' and the d" both merging into c", 
and the f" subsiding blissfully into e". 

A chord of 4 tones is called a chord of the seventh or seventh chord, 
because the interval between the first and last tones is a seventh 
(g'~f"). This chord, gf-b'-d"-t" 9 is a dominant 7th, then. If we 
wish, we can add another third, a", and make a chord g-b-d-f-a, 
called a, ninth chord. The dominant yth, however, is far the more 
useful. In fact it is the most energetic chord in all music, and 



12 AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 

whatever key you may be in, if you stray into the dominant seventh 
of a foreign key, it drags you along eagerly and hales you into that 
foreign key to which it belongs and for which it is a most eager 
usher. 

This seventh chord, pleasant as it is, is only a go-between, it offers 
no point of repose, but requires an almost immediate dissolution 
into another chord. The musical term for one of these restless 
chords is dissonance; the musical term for the necessity and process 
of merging it into another is called resolution. The word dissonant 
does not necessarily mean "ugly" or " harsh" in music, but merely 
implies lack of stability. 

This dominant 7th chord has magical powers for transition* 
Take the tonic triad of the key of C major in the second inversion, 
that is, touch g with the left hand and e'-g'-c" with the right. 
Now lift the finger off the upper gf and place it on bV Instantly 
you find it undesirable to go back to the c'-e'-g' triad arid you are 
impelled to lower that b'b to a 7 , bring the e' up to f, keep the c" 
where it is and lower the g in the left hand to f. Now you feel 
at rest; if you will pause and look, you will find that the b'b, which 
is characteristic of the key of F, has led you into the triad f'-a'-c", 
which is the tonic triad of the key of F. If you revert to the state 
of affairs existing when that foreigner b'b entered the peaceful key 
of C, you will find that the chord formed by its entrance could be 
arranged to read c'-e'-g'-bV This is a ?th chord on the tone c. 
But while the tone c 7 is tonic of the key of C, it is the fifth or domi- 
nant of the key of F. Yet, though this 7th chord was built on the 
tonic of C, as it happened to be the dominant of F, it forced the 
key over into the tonality of F. This is the case with every domi- 
nant 7th chord. 

It is possible by a slight diversion to throw the resolution of the 
chord into other keys, but this always comes as a surprise to the 
hearer. It may be justified and it may be pleasurable, but it is a 
surprise, and in a sense abnormal. 

Going back to the first formation of the 7th chord, it will be found 
that the 7th chord, on other tones than the dominant, are rather 
murky or even distressing. These are called secondary 7ths and 
must be handled in gingerly manner. 



AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 13 



VI 

NOW if we take our dominant 7th of the key of C, that is, 
g'~b'-d"-f", and raise the g 7 a half-step so that the chord 
reads g 7 #~b 7 -d /7 ~f ", it will most naturally resolve itself into 
this chord, a' c"-e 77 , a sombre chord which is minor because its 
third from a-c is minor (the major third being a-c#, as eft would 
be characteristic of the key of A). This chord, a'-c"-c", has the 
look of a chord in the key of C, but it seems to offer a sense of de- 
jected repose and makes no demand for progress to the tonic chord, 
c'-e'-g'. We arrived at this chord by way of a curious chord with 
ft) but g#. The chord g'-b'-d"-f " had been a minor 7th (the inter- 
val from g 7 to f 77 being less than the major interval, which would 
be g 7 to f 7 #), but this chord, g'#-b 7 -d' 7 -f", is even narrower than 
minor. It is hence called a diminished 7th chord. 

We have been led to believe that the first sharp of a major key 
was f, and that c followed, then g. This is true of a major key, 
but here we are under a different flag. You can construct a scale 
out of these two chords, the diminished 7th and its resolution, and 
3$-b~d-f; a-c-e gives us a-b-c-d-e~f-g#-a as an octave scale. 
This scale, which is closely related to the C major scale, is founded 
on a 7 , which is a minor third below c 77 . So it will be found that 
every major key has one of these disappointed relative keys a minor 
third below and differing from it, for harmonic purposes, only in 
the fact that the 7th tone of this minor scale is raised a half-step 
above the tone of the same name in the major scale (in the scale of 
A minor, the 7th tone, g#, is the only tone foreign to the scale of 
C major, and it is a half-tone higher than the tone g; the key of 
C minor corresponds exactly with the major key a minor third 
above, that is Eb, except that where b is flattened in the key of 
Eb major, it is made natural in the scale of C minor). This is the 
case with every major and minor key; the related minor key is a 
minor third below and raises the 7th tone of its major scale a half- 
otep (as g to g$; eb to etj). Thus far we have concerned ourselves 
only with major scales, keys and intervals. But life would be very 
monotonous if it were all sunshine, blue sky and laughter* Music 
could not represent or stimulate human emotion, as it does, without 
a large armoury of sombre colours, bitter dissonances and, in place 
of a sense of cheerful repose, a feeling of resigned despair. These 
purposes are subserved by the minor key- 



14 AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 

In looking at scales and intervals we find that certain of the inter- 
vals were to be distinguished as "greater" and "lesser-" The 
Latin words meaning greater and lesser are major and minor. 
(And as the mediaeval Latinity of the Catholic Church was the 
fountain-head of modern music, many of its terms persist.) On the 
major scale there were indeed four minor triads to only three ir,ajor. 
There is abundance of minor material then in music. Its arrange- 
ment into scales and keys cannot be so easily explained as that of 
the major mode; indeed upon this subject scientists are mutually 
discordant and commonly as "troubled" (betrtibf) as the great 
musical scientist Helmholtz found the minor scale itself. 

Where doctors disagree, the layman would do best to pass by 
on the other side. Let us take the minor keys as we find them and 
thank Heaven for their existence as mirrors to the chillier, grayer 
moods of the mind. Music has indeed laid up something for a 
rainy day. 

To go any further into the construction of chords would be to 
write a text-book on Harmony. 

Those who wish to pursue the subject of chord construction and progression 
will find further information in such articles as Chord, Harmony, Thorough* 
bass, Parallel, Covered, Anticipation, Suspension, Interval, Altered, etc., in 
the Dictionary of Definitions.

GtVEN the scales for melody and the chords for harmony, 
with an unlimited variety of progressions, the subject of 
rhythm enters* There was a time when the music of the 
scholars was all in notes of equal length; such music was well called 
plain-song (plarnts meaning literally " smooth"). But popular in- 
stinct and popular music still had drum-rhythms and dances and 
finally forced the music of the scholars to return to humanity; and 
so-called mensurable (i.e., measurable) music began* 

The definition of rhythm is so native and instinctive in everyone 
that it would be impertinence to foist it on the reader* It is to be 
noted, however, that in music it depends on the relative accent and 
duration of notes following a pattern more or less closely* The 
rhythm of a composition can be expressed by thumping it on a 
table with your fingers, for rhythm is independent of height or low- 
ness of the tone and the volume of sound* Struxn out in this way 
such tunes as "Comin' Thro' the Rye," "Yankee Doodle," "We 



AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 15 

Won't Go Home Until Morning," or the like, or airs of more dignity. 
If you mark the accents forcefully, the regularity of the rhythmical 
pattern becomes evident, and almost as monotonous as certain 
styles of wall-paper. If you tap with the left hand a regular beat 
like a clock's, only faster, the rhythm of the air will assume new 
vividness. 

Take "Comin' Thro' the Rye" for example, the rhythm could 
be expressed by underlining with the right hand a series of numbers 
to be ticked off by the left hand: 

If a bod-y meet a bod - y com - in' thro' the rye- 



-2, 3> 4-5, 6, 7-8, 9> I _2Tl2^ I2 > I 3~i4> 15, 16-17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 



If a bod-y kiss a bod-y need a bod-y cry 

25-26, 27, 28-29,30,31-32, 33/34-35,36,37-3S, 39 ? 40-41, 42, 43> 44, 45 



This covers two lines of the song, the rest of which follows the same 
model. We find 48 beats in the two lines of verse, 24 to each line* 
The rhythm is almost exactly stencilled all the way through; it be- 
gins over again, after every sixth count, each 7th count having a 
marked accent, the 4th of each group of 6 having a lighter accent. 
If, since the rhythm is the same, we simply repeat the first 6 numer- 
als and cut off with a line every group of 6, we shall have the song 
pictured in as simple a pattern as that of the r maid's own print gown. 

If a body meet a body corn-in* thro' the rye 

/x-2, 3, 4, 5, 6/1-2, 3, 4-5, 6/1-2, 3, 4-5, 6/1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6/ 

Call each of these groups a measure, the slanted line a bar, take a 
certain time or note- value as the unit in place of these numbers and 
you will have the musical terminology. As the notes are short the 
quick eighth note (one-eighth of a whole note) may be taken as the 
unit; there are 6 of these in each measure, and the time of the song is 
said to be six-eighths or 6-8 time* This is a combination of triple and 
duple rhythm, for, while each measure contains 6 Counts, these 
counts are divided into two groups of three each and there axe two 
accents to each measure, consequently 6-8 time is sometimes used 
for marches. 

But the typical march time for marches (as well as for many other 
moods, as "Auld lang syne," etc,) is, as you will find, divisible into 
measures of 4 counts each, with two accents to each measure. As 
the whole note is taken as the whole extent of each measure, the 
presence of four beats to the measure gives each beat a -fourth or 
quarter-note value. It is therefore called 4-4 time, or simply 



1 AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 

common-time. Very quick inarches are sometimes written in 24 
time with one beat to the measure. Waltzes are written with 3 
beats and only one accent to the measure. This time is called 3-4 
time. Other rhythms are 3-2, a slow time (with 3 half-notes and 
3 accents to the measure) ; 3-8 time (a light quick time with 3 eighth 
notes and one accent to the measure) ; 64 time (a slower form of 6-8 
measure, differing from 3-2 only in having two accents to the meas- 
ure); 9-8 (with 9 eighth notes and 3 accents), &c. (v. article on 
Time). 

VIII 

NO WAY of submitting music to the all-devouring decimal 
system has yet been brought into play. The measure- 
notes are all multiples of 2 and 4: whole notes, half, quar- 
ter, 8th, 1 6th, 32d, and 64th notes. 

The larger divisions of music also fail to follow the decimal sys- 
tem. In the analysis of "Comin' Thro' the Rye" the measures 
themselves can be collected into groups of 2, 4 and 8. There is a 
-slight pause after every other measure, a perceptible pause at the 
2nd of the- 4th measure, a longer pause at the end of the 8th, Th* 
aext group of 8 measures is likewise divisible into groups of 2 and 4. 

This quality of divisibility into 4 and 8 measures is a fundamental 
kiw of musical structure. Because it is such a law many coxnpoaers 
strive to hide its nakedness or re-shape it to special purposes, but 
these are exceptions which by their very sense of novelty and oddity 
prove and emphasise the general rule. 

A group of eight measures is called a period; this period contains 
two phrases of four measures each; each phrase contains two sections, 
ef 2 measures; and each section is generally divisible into Its melodic 
or rhythmic motive or subject. The song "Coimn* Thro* the Rye** 
is especially clean-cut in its divisions. They correspond in spirit to 
the comma, semicolon, colon and period of ordinary prose, but occur 
with far -more regularity. Frequently the periods themselves can 
be collected into larger groups or compound periods corresponding 
to paragraphs. The first accent of a measure has a stronger accent 
than thle second br third. So the first accent of the first measure of a 
period should receive a greater stress than the first accent of the 
first measure of a phrase, and so on. In the proper distribution of 
accents 'He$ the larger part of musical punctuation, or, as it is called, 



AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 17 



IX 

IN THE first group of 8 measures of "Comin' Thro' the Rye'* 
there is a general upward tendency to the melody. The second 
period begins on a high note (at the words ct Ilka body ") and has 
a downward tendency. This desire for a contrast is at the root of 
all musical form. This song is condensed even beyond the usual 
popular form, partly because of the stanza-form of its poetry. 
"The Last Rose of Summer" fulfils the typical song-form which 
contains a theme of one or more periods, followed by a contrasting o r 
subsidiary theme of one or more periods, the song concluding with a, 
repetition of the first or principal theme. Practically the same idea 
governs the typical dance-form though the themes are likely to be 
more elaborate and the second theme is still stupidly called a trie 
(from the fact that it was actually in old times given to a trio of 
instruments in order to contrast its simple song-like manner with 
the more ornate and broken progress of the principal theme). 

It would naturally occur to composers seeking variety, to put thi 
subsidiary theme into a different key, to emphasise the contrast. 
The key naturally chosen would be a closely related key. This is 
usually the case, and the contrast of keys is a most important part 
of classic forms. 

The elaboration or variation of the themes in a way to show off 
the composer's scholarship and cleverness, was also as inevitable as 
human pride in skill. 

The word variations has, in the general mind, a thought of "The 
Old Oaken Bucket" and "Nearer, My God, to Thee" "with varia- 
tions." " Variations" is an incorrect word here; the proper term for 
these cheap and gaudy works being embellishments, for the air is 
simply made a trellis for all manner of running vines and frippery. 

The true variation of a theme is its genuine manipulation. Take 
the first 2 measures of "Comin' Thro' the Rye" as a theme; i.e., 
the notes to the words "Gin a body meet a body," sit down again 
before the piano and play this theme, picking out the notes as in- 
dicated from their letter-names as shown in the Chart. 

Suppose the notes to be placed 

/c' c' c' e'/ d' c' d' e'/g g a g/c'. 

If with the right hand you play the theme as indicated, and shortly 
after follow in with the left hand (as you would follow the leading 



\ 18 AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 

voice in singing such a round as "Three Blind Mice"), you will use 
the frequent device called for evident reasons imitation, as here* 

Right hand/c' c' c' e' / d' c' d' e'/g g a g/c' - - - /&c. 
Left hand / ..... / --------- /c c c e/d c d e/&c. 

This is imitation at the octave and at two measures* distance; imitation 
may be at a different interval and distance, at the fifth, for instance: 

Right hand/ c' c' c' e / d' c 7 d? e 7 / &c. 
Left hand / - / f f a / &c. 



Imitation need not be so sJrwtf as this; it may be/r^, the intervals 
being slightly changed to enrich the harmony, for it Is not every air 
that can be treated smoothly and strictly at the same time* Here, 
for instance, the a in the left hand might be reduced to a g. Imita- 
tion in the orchestra has vast scope. The trombones may proclaim 
a splendid phrase which the oboes will cackle over ludicrously, the 
flutes whistle gaily, the clarinets echo gurgingly, the 'cellos bemoan 
nasally, and the violins murmur deliciously. 

But in piano or organ composition, imitation is more restricted. 
Sometimes a composer in mathematical mood will set an elaborate 
air jogging, and when it has gone a few spaces along, will start after 
it its very double. The two will race like twin snakes. 

When the imitation is exact, whole step by whole step, skip by 
skip, whole note by whole note, and half -note by half-note, the com- 
position is said to be a canon. The canon may set more than two 
snakes wriggling swiftly along at always the same distance from 
head to head. Fugue is only a special form of composition in which 
the canon plays a large part, the word "fuga" meaning "flight* 1 *

f | ^HE devices for varying a theme are infinite. It can be 
I played in longer notes while another theme chosen from 

JL another part of the song ripples about it; or the duration 
of the notes can be shortened. The new treatment of a theme by 
lengthening its notes is called augmentation; the shortening of the 
notes is diminution. 

The upper of two themes can be made the lower at different in- 
tervals than the octave; this is called tmemtm. Another form of 
inversion is the turning of a theme upside down, so that whenever it 



AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 19 

went up before, it goes down now, and vice versa; this is imitation 
by contrary motion. 

A theme can be picked to pieces and different fragments of it 
tossed to and fro with the skill of a juggler (and about as much im- 
portance). The first 4 notes of "Comin ? Thro 7 the Rye" could be 
taken as a figure and repeated. Thus: 

c' c' c' e', e' e' e' g'fc g'# g'# g'# b', etc. 

This would be called a sequence. The themes could be played ia 
octaves, or in varied and key-changing chords as: 

If a bod -y 

eb-g-c 1 , f-ab-c 1 , g-bb-c 1 , g-bb-e 1 

It could be ornamented as: 

If a bod -y 

c 7 c 7 d 7 c' b 7 c' d 7 c 7 e 7 e 7 e' e 7 

C , t, , U 9 C , U,C,tL,C,C,C,C,e* 

In fact, there is no hinting here the dissection and reconstruction 
of which a theme is capable. As opposed to a melodious or lyric 
treatment, this method is called thematic. Common names for this 
sort of treatment are "development, elaboration, variation, working- 
out, free fantasy," &c., &c., the Germans calling it Durchfiihrung, 
"going through,"

highest and noblest form of strictly academic and 
I formal composition is the sonata, for the symphony is only 
1 a sonata for orchestra. We have now arrived hastily at a 
point where a rough explanation of this form is possible. 

This is the way you should set about writing a sonata, or rather, 
one of the ways, for the sonata is elastic and has some room for in- 
dividual tastes. 

First you select a melody, one with an elocutionary and sen- 
tentious manner, and containing many good texts to develop. You 
write it out plainly and emphatically in the key that suits it best. 
As a sidelight and a foil you select some more lyrical and song-like 
air, and for contrast you put it in another key, naturally one of the 
related keys, most naturally the nearest related key, or the domi- 
nant. Or you might put the second melody in the relative minor. 
Having stated your two subjects, you may choose to repeat them 



20 AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 

word for word, or note for note, so that there shall be no mistaking 
them; you may then add a concluding reflection more or less elabo- 
rate. This is the first section of the sonata. 

Having stated the two texts, the principal and the subsidiary, 
you now propose to show their true profoundness, and your own true 
skill as an orator. You employ the devices of elaboration mentioned 
above, and you play battledore and shuttlecock with the two themes 
in all the keys you wish till they fly to pieces; then you juggle the 
pieces; you modulate from grave to gay; from cold to tropical, from 
whisper to shriek, from insinuation to fervid appeal, from metaphor 
to homely paraphrase; in fact, you invoke every art and artifice you 
can borrow from the schools or can find in the promptings of your 
own emotions. When you have exhausted all the devices propriety 
or your knowledge permits, you have finished the second section of 
the sonata, the so-called Working-out, or Development, or Free 
Fantasy, or Elaboration. 

The third section consists of a re-statement of the first theme in 
the original or tonic key, followed by the second theme, not in its 
related key, but now in the same key as ike first theme > in order that 
a definite key may be left in the mind to give an effect of unity. A 
short peroration or coda ends the sermon like a welcome benediction. 

This is what is strictly called the sonata form. It is reasonable 
and based on a natural and artistic arrangement of ideas and their 
development. 

The sonata is not complete in this one composition, or movement 
as it is called. Three or usually four contrasted movements are 
strung together. They usually have some faint suggestion of simi- 
larity of theme, but variety of mood and key is the chief endeavor, 
A slow movement (called from its slowness by one of the Italian 
words meaning "slow'" Andante, lento, largo), marked by deep 
pathos or tragedy, usually follows the passionate outburst. Then 
comes a lighter mood in one or two movements in the form of (a) 
a,n optimistic and prettily braided Rondo with one chief theme and 
two attendant themes; (b) a gallant Minuet; or (c) a witty and 
jocose scherzo. 

The sonata ends with a Finale of stormy and brilliant character 
generally built on the same scheme as the first movement and writ- 
ten in the same key. 

The whole group of three or four movements makes up a sonata. 
The first movement of the sonata is often also called the " sonata- 
form." 



AN INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC 21 

An overture (excepting one that is a medley of airs) is merely the 
first movement of a sonata, written out for an orchestra. A sym- 
phony is merely a whole sonata written to take advantage of the en- 
larged opportunities of a great orchestra of from 50 to 120 instru- 
ments. The sonata-formula is also the basis of the string-quartet , 
-quintet, etc., and of concertos for solo instruments with orchestra. 

A symphonic poem is a symphony only in the breadth of its orches, 
tration and its high demands. Like many smaller forms it forsakes 
the somewhat rigid arrangement of the sonata and other classical 
forms and lets the moods or the story it tells furnish the programme 
of musical events. A composition which has some programme 
other than the classic arrangement of keys and sections; a pro- 
gramme for instance representing musically a storm or the tragedy 
of "Romeo and Juliet" such a composition is said to be programme 
music. In its worst form, when programme music descends to cheap 
and unconvincing imitations of natural sounds instead of contenting 
itself with an artistic suggestion of them to the hearers' imagination, 
such music, if music it can be called, becomes quite as hopeless trash 
as that school of music which stoops to cheap and unconvincing 
imitations of classical masters and parrots devices which only the 
original spontaneity of the old master himself can keep alive. But 
generalisations are vain. What is poison as one man serves it up, 
is meat from another's hands. One failure or one triumph no more 
makes a rule than one bluebird brings the spring. 

This hasty and incomplete sketch will have failed in its purpose 
if it leads its reader to the delusion that he need investigate no fur- 
ther the real mysteries of the art of music; if it lead to the delusion 
that because the art is founded on certain physical laws of inner and 
outer nature, the artistic imagination is to be hobbled to them; or if 
it lead to the delusion that any one form, symmetrical or natural 
soever, can suffice for all generations or all moods, or that any school 
of masters can hope to embody all that is good and solid in the art. 

The classic masters were once living, breathing, passionate young 
artists, impatient of precedent and breaking rules for sheer pleasure 
as wanton boys smash windows. He who approaches them with 
intelligence and sympathy will find them still made of bone and 
blood, sinew and spirit. But once he has had the inestimable de- 
light of their acquaintance, he must, above all things, avoid the be- 
lief that art and glory died with them. He should approach every 
new work, howsoever startling, with a readiness to be convinced 
that the new trumpeter, standing on the outer hilltop which we

including concertos and sonatas and 
many smaller pieces; after 1890 he 
undertook the study of composition 
in Paris with d'Indy and composed 
the operas "Pepita Jiminez" " Henry 
Clifford," a trilogy "King Arthur"- 
and the orch. suite "Catalonia" 
Among other compositions are 
"Iberia" suite for piano (several 
numbers orch. by Arbos), an oratorio 
"Cristo," and many songs. His

intensity of feeling, and also has 
many impressionistic influences.

unfinished at his death. In 1923 his 
"Pepita Jiminez" was restored with 
success at the Paris Op.-Comique.

but forbade him inspection of a MS. 
vol. of works by Frohberger, Buxte- 
hude, etc., obtaining it secretly B* 
copied it by moonlight for 6 months, 
though near-sighted, with results 
fatal to his eyes in later life. This 
desire to study other men's work 
characterised his whole career. At 
15 his fine soprano voice secured him 
free tuition at St. Michael's Ch. in 
Ltineberg (he having already at-* 
tended tne Ohrdruff Lyceum). He 
went on foot on holidays to Hamburg 
to hear the great Dutch organist 
Reinken, and at Celle he heard the

B. arrived at Potsdam. He impro- 
vised upon the various Silbermann 
pianos in the palace, followed from 
room to room by the king and his 
musicians. The next day he tried 
the principal organs in Potsdam, 
improvising a 6-part fugue on a 
theme proposed by the king. He 
afterward wrote a 3-part fugue on 
this theme, a Ricercare in 6 parts, 
several canons inscribed "Thematis 
regii elaborationes canonicae," and 
a trio for flute, violin, and bass, 
dedicating the " Musikalisches Opfer" 
to the king. 1749, two operations to 
restore his sight, weakened by copy- 
ing his own and other men's works 
and engraving his "Art of Fugue," 
left him totally blind and ruined his 
previous vigour. His sight was 
suddenly restored, July 10, 1750; 
but 10 days later he died of apoplexy. 
He dictated the choral "Vor deinen 
Thron ire? ich kiemit," shortly before 
bis death* 

Among his distinguished pupils were 
Krebs, Homilius, Agricola, Kirnber- 
ger, Goldberg, Marpurg; J* Kasper 
Vogler; Altmkol, his son-in-law, and 
his sons for whom he wrote the 
" Klavierbuchlein," and the " Kunst 
der Fuge." He engraved on copper; 
invented the "viola pomposa" and 
the "Lauten-Clavicembalum"; he 
advocated equal temperament (vide 
D. D.), tuning his own pianos and 
writing "Das Wohltemperirte Kla~ 
t%** to further the cause. This 
work (known in English as "The well- 
tempered Clavichord," or "The 48- 
Fugues**) is a set of 48 preludes and 
fugues, two of each to each key, 
major and minor* The works are 
very chromatic and use the keys 
eaharmonically. Some of his im- 
provements in fingering still survive. 
Bach was little known as a composer 
during his life, and few of his works 
were published then. He was not 
indeed established on his present 
pinnacle till Mendelssohn took up 
lus cause, in 1839; Franz was also an 
important agent in preparing his 
scores for general use. In 1850, a hun- 
dred years after his death, the BACH- 
GESELLSCHAFT began to publish 
bis complete works. Many other 
Bach societies now e*!at, B*s. enor- 
mous list of works includes: VOCAL, 
5 sets of cfcureh Cantatas for Sundays 
and feast-days, "Gottts ZeU ist die 



beste Zeit," etc., various secular 
cantatas, 2 comic cantatas, the 
"Bauern Cantate" and "Cofee-Can- 
tate," a protest against the excessive 
use of the beverage, and Trauerode, 
on the death of the Electress of Sax- 
ony; 5 Passions, incl. the St. Matthew, 
the St. John, and the St. Luke 
(doubtful); a Christmas Oratorio, in 

5 parts; 4 small masses and the 
Grand Mass in B min.; motets; 2 
Magnificats; 5 Sanctus. INSTRU- 
MENTAL, numerous pieces for clav- 
ichord: inventions in 2 and 3 parts; 

6 "small" French suites; 6 "large" 
English suites; Preludes and Fugues, 
incl. "Das Wohltemperirte Klavier"; 
the remarkable "Goldberg Varia- 
tions" $ pf. -sonatas with instrs., incl. 
6 famous sonatas for pf. and vln.; 
solo sonatas for vln. and 'cello; solos, 
trips, etc., for various combinations 
of instrs., concertos for i to 4 pf s. vln. 
and other instrs., concertos with 
orch.; 6 notable "Brandenburg" 
concertos; overtures and suites, and 
fantasias, toccatas, preludes, fugues, 
and chorale-arrangements for organ. 
The modern-minded musicians of the 
twentieth century have found new 
formal and harmonic interest in B's. 
works, and an entire school has used 
as its slogan, "Back to Bach," in an 
effort to throw off the influence of 
Romantic styles of thought and feel- 
ing. Such a work as his monumental 
"Art of the Fugue" has gained wide 
popularity in the concert-room, the 
latter arr. for orch. by W. Graeser, 
heard in Europe and U. S. often 
after 1926. The best biography of 

B. is by Spitta (Leipzig, 1873-80, 
2 vols.: Eng. transl., London, 1884- 
85)* Other memoirs by Forkel, 
Schweitzer, Parry, Pirro, C. S. 
Terry, Boughton, Buhrraaa. and 

C, F. A. Williams. The Bach 
"Jahrbucher," pub. by Breitkopf & 
Hartel, also hold much material of 
value. Books on Bs. music have 
been issued in great numbers, incl. 
works by Fuller-Maitland, Grace, 
Iliffe, Prout, Riemann, Schweitzer, 
Whittaker and C. S. Terry, (See

600 florins annually from Prince 
Lichnowsky, his warmest admirer. 
March 20, 1795, he played his C 
major pf.-concerto in the Burg- 
theater, his first public appearance; 
1796, he played before King Fr, Wm. 
II. ; 1708, at Prague, he gave 2 sen- 
sational concerts and met two piano 
virtuosi: Steibelt who challenged B. 
to extemporise and was sadly worsted, 
and Wmffl, who became his friend. 
1800 ends what is called (after von 
Lenz's book "B. et ses trois styles") 
his "first period" of composition; 
the "second period," extending to 
1815; the "third" to 1827, This 
first period includes op. 1-18, pf . and 
string-trios, string-quartets, o pf.- 
sonatas, 7 variations on "God Save 
the Queen" and 5 on "Ride Britan-

na," the aria "Ah perjido," etc. 
Now a severe and early venereal 
trouble affected his liver, and began 
to ruin his hearing, which by 1822 
was entirely gone. Though he had 
always been brusque (especially with 
the aristocracy, among whom he had 
an extraordinarily long list of friend- 
ships and love-affairs), his former 
generosity and geniality speedily de- 
veloped into atrocious suspiciousness 
and violence toward his best friends. 
The wild life of a nephew whom he 
supported brought him great bitter- 
ness* Until the beginning of the 
"third periodj" however, heTbad large 
stores of joy in life, open-air Nature, 
and the details of his compositions 
which were worked up with utmost 
c&,re from "sketch-books,"- always 
carried with him, and still extant as 
a unique example of genius at work. 
In the arbitrary but somewhat con- 
venient von Lenz classification the 
sd period includes the symphonies 
III VIII; the opera "Fidelia"*, the 
music to "Egmont"*, the ballet 
"Prometheus"; the Mass in C, op. 86. 
the oratorio "Christus am Oefberg- 
(1803); the "Coriolanus" overture; 
a pf.-concertos, i vim-concerto; 3 
quartets; 4 pf. -trios and 14 pf> 
sonatas (among them op* 27, op* 38, 
31, No. 2, 53, 57, and 81); the 
"Lledcrkrcis," etc. The "third pe- 
riod" incl. the five pf .-sonatas, op. xoi , 
nt, the "Missa solennis," the Ninth 
Symphony, the overture "Ruins of 
Athens," the overtures op* 115, 124; 
the grand fugue for string-quartet, 
and the string-quartets op, 127, 130, 
131* *3*> *35 (F). 

"Fidelio" first named "Ltonore" 
w*s prod. Nov. 20, 1805, just a week 
after the French army entered Vien- 
na, It was withdrawn after three 
consecutive performances; revised 
and prod. March 29, 1806, but with- 
drawn by B. after two performances. 
Once more revised, it was revived in 
1814, very successfully; the present 
overture is the result of various ver- 
sions known as the Leonore overtures 
i, 2, and 3* The "Eroica"- sym- 
phonv (No- 3) was called "Sinfonia 
grande Napoleon Bonaparte" in hon- 
our of his advocacy of "liberty, 
equality, and fraternity." When 
Napoleon proclaimed himself em- 
peror, B tore up the title-page in 
wrath and changed the name to 



"Sinfonia eroica composta per 
teggiare il sowenire d*un gron 
(Heroic symphony, composed to 
celebrate the memory of a great 
man.) In the Ninth Symphony, a 
choral Finale is used as the final 
addition to the orchestra! climax of 
ecstasy (the words from Schiller's 
"Hymn to Joy"). In 1809 Jerome 
Bonaparte invited B. to become con- 
ductor at Cassel with a salary of 600 
ducats (about $1,500); but his Vien- 
nese patrons Archduke Rudolf and 
the Princes Lobkowitz and Kinsfcy, 
settled on him an annuity of 4,000 
florins ($2,000), Etec-i- 1826, a vio- 
lent cold resulted in pneumonia; 
dropsy followed, B. saying to the 
doctors who tapped him three times 
and drew out the wuter, "Better from 
my belly than from my pen." After 
an illness of 3 months he took the 
Roman Catholic sacraments, a two- 
days' agony of semi-consciousness 
followed and he died, just after shak- 
ing his clenched fist in the air., during 
a terrific thunderstorm, the evening 
of March 26, 1827. 20,000 persons 
attended his funeral.

Paris, March 8, 1869: "Father of 
modern orchestration <; conductor, 
critic, writer of verse and electric 
prose; sent to Paris to study medi- 
cine, he accepted disinheritance and 
took up music, though he could never 
play any instr. save the guitar and 
flageolet; while pupil at the Cons., he 
earned a bare living; joined the 
chorus of the Gyrnnase Dramatique; 
left the Cons, in disgust with Reicha's 
formalism, and plunged with charac- 
teristic energy or rather fury into 
the cause of romanticism; 1825, an 
orchestral mass given at St. Roch 
brought the ridicule he usually had 
in France where he was little thought 
of as a composer though admired as 
a writer; 1828 saw the production of 
two overtures, "Waverley" and "Les 
Frances- Juges"> and a Symphonic 
fantastique, "Episode de la vie d'un 
artiste"', 1829, his "Concerts des 
Sylphes"* publicly produced at 26, 
show him an ardent believer in 
programme-music (vide B. r>.) and a 
marvellous virtuoso in instrumenta- 
tion. He reSntered the Cons, under 
Lesueur, in spite of Cherubim, who 
fought his admission; 1830, he took 
the Prix de Rome with a cantata, 
"Sardanafale"y after 18 months in 
Italy he returned to Paris and took 
up journalism with marked success. 
His symphony "Harold en Italic 9 * 
(1834), tne "Messe des Morts" (1837), 
the dram, symphony "Rom6o et Juli- 
ette" with vocal soli and chorus 
(1839), and the overture "Carneval 
romain" were well received, but the 
2-act opera semi-seria "Benvenuto 
Cellini" failed both in Paris and in 
London, 1838. In 1839 Ae was made 
Conservator of the Cons.; librarian, 
1852, but was never made professor 
as he desired. Concert tours through 
Germany and Russia, 1843-47, were 
very successful and are described in 
his book " Voyage musical"- London 
(1852) he cond. the "New Phillu 
Concerts"; prod, comic opera "

rice et Benedict (1862, Baden-Baden); 
1865, member of the Academic, and 
decorated with cross of Legion of 
Honour. He m. Henrietta Smith- 
son, an Irish actress who made a sen- 
sation in Paris in Shakespearian 
roles, but later was hissed off, and 
became a peevish invalid. His 
opera. "Les Troy ens d Carthage" 
(1863) was a failure. His son Louis 
died 1867. "Les Troyens, 9 ' in two 
parts; "La Prise de Troie," 3 acts, and 
'Les Troyens d Carthage," in 5 acts 
was given complete for the first time, 
at Carlsruhe, 1897. His most succ. 
work was his "oratorio," "La 
Damnation de Faust" (1846)* His 
"Trait* d* instrumentation" is a clas- 
sic in orchestration, though its then 
sensational modernity is lost. B. 
strangely despised Wagner, who, 
however, confessed his large indebt- 
edness to B. Other books are 
"Soirees d'orckestre" (1853), "Gro- 
tesques de la musique" (1859), "A 
travers chants" (1862), and an auto- 
biography, "Mtmoircs," from 1803- 
65. In original verse are the text 
to the sacred trilogy "L'Enfance du 
Christ" (Part /., Le songe & Her ode; 
//., Lafuite en gypte; ///., UAr- 
rfaie d Sais); and his operas "Lfs 
Troyens" and "Beatrice et Benedict." 
He composed also a "Te &eum** for 
3 choirs^ orch, and org.; a "Grand 
symphonie Junebre et triompkale*' for 
full military band, with strings and 
chorus ad lib.; overture to "Le 
Corsaire": "Le Cinq Mai," for chorus 
and orcn. (on the anniversary 
of Napoleon's death), etc. Recent 
studies of B. have been published 
in English by W. J. Turner (1934) 
and Tom S. Wotton (1935); co- 
inciding with a resurgence of interest 
in this composer on the part of a 
modern-minded coterie of musicians 
in Britain. Revivals of Beriioz 
operas have also taken place, notably 
of "Le$ Troyens" and "Beatrice and 
Benedict," at Glasgow. (See article,

Boleldieu (b5-d-yu), (i) Fran. Adrien, 
Rouen, Dec. 16 (not 15), 1775 
Jarcy, near Grosbois, Oct. 8, 1834; 
son of secretary of Archp. Laroche- 
loucauld and a milliner; apprenticed 
to the intemperate, brutal cathedral 
organist Broche, he ran away, at 12, 
and walked to Paris, but was brought

other teaching. At 18, he prod. succ. 
4 *j6a Jttlc coupable" (Rouen, 1793); 
*79S "Rosalie et Myrza" text of 
both by his father. Discouraged in 
a planned Cons, at Rouen, he again 
walked to Paris, and subsisted as 
teacher and piano-tuner to Erard. 
The tenor Garat sang his still pop. 
songs, in public, and won him a 
publisher. 1796, " La Dot de Suzette,"- 
in one act, was prod, with succ. 
(Qpra-Com.); 1797, "La famille

bim, who had criticised him. After 
3 years' silence, he reappeared with

Aurore" (Th. Feydeau, 1803). In 
1803 he m. Clotilde Mafleuroy, a 
twdlet-dancer; 1803, he went to St. 



Petersburg, partially perhaps (but 
not surely) because of domestic un- 
happiness, and became cond. of the

marches. He returned to Paris, 
181 1 ; had immense succ., particularly 
with "Jean de Paris," 1812; 1817

1827 he m. Mile. Phillis, a singer, 
who was a devoted wife. The pov- 
erty of their last years was relieved 
by Thiers, minister of Louis Philippe, 
who made him an annuity of 6,000 
francs. He died at his country- 
home, of pulmonary trouble. B.'s 
work has great vivacity and vitality 
combined with musical sweetness, 
and rhythm without jingle. His 
large gifts in the construction of 
ensembles are seen in the septet and 
chorus at the end of the 2d act of 
"La Dame Blanche" which up to 
1875 had been performed 1340 times 
at the same theatre; its libretto is a 
combination of 2 of Scott's novels 
"The Monastery" and "Guy Man* 
nering." He collaborated with Che- 
rubim in "La Prisonniere" (i799)j 
with M6hul, Kxeutzer, and others,

hands; for lie forsook the romanti- 
cism which Schumann, and later 
Liszt expected of him, and took up 
a determined classicism in the matter 
of form, in which, however, he made 
many modifications to suit his 
enormous intellectuality and tech- 
nical resource. This early welcome 
also gave him over to be bandied 
between believers like Hanslick who 
were frantic to find an opponent to 
the progress of Wagner, and sceptics 
who would not have him praised for 
any quality. Schumann's advocacy 
did not save B,'s publication and 
concert performance of his 3 pf.- 
sonatas and 3 books of songs from 
failure. After serving for a time as 
cond. to the Prince of Lippe-Detmold, 
he retired for study to Hamburg, 
1858-62. 1862 Vienna; 1863-64 
cond. of the SingakademU there; 
1864-69 Hamburg, Zurich, Baden-* 
Baden, etc., and made tours with 
Stockhausen; 1869, Vienna, which 
was afterward his headquarters. 
In 1871-74, cond. "Gesellschaft der 
Musikfreunde," In 1877 Cambridge 
University offered him the degree of 
Mus. Doc., which offer he ignored, 
accepting, *88t, Dr. Phil, from 
Breslau and writing in acknowledg- 
ment the "Akadcmische Festeuwr- 
Wre"\ 1886, a knight of the Prussian 
Ordre pour le Me*rite, with voting 
privilege, and a member of the Br- 
Kn Acad. of Arts, 1889 presented 
with the freedom of Hamburg. His 
"German Requiem" op. 45 (the first 
3 choruses given in Vienna, 1867), 
was given complete in the Bremen 
cathedral, April, *868, and estab- 
lished him on a peak where he has 
since remained while the storms of 
de-bate rage below him. He wrote in 
almost every form but opera (he had 
considered that at one time) but ad- 
mitted he "knew nothing about the 
theatre.* 7 He valued Wagner's 
scores, and owned several Wagner 
autographs; Wagner, however, said 
"Brahms is a composer whose im- 
portance lies in not wishing to create 
any striking effect." His first sym- 
phony, on which he had spent 10 
years, made a sensation when prod. 
1876. His vln.-concerto when first 
shown to Joachim was so impossible 
to the vln. that J, laughed at it till 
tears poured down his cheeks; he is 
said to have materially assisted in its 



revision. Brahms was a brilliant 
pianist in his youth; in his aoth year, 
at a concert with Remenyi, the piano 
was discovered to be a semitone 
below concert-pitch; B M playing 
without notes, transposed the ac- 
companiment to Beethoven's 
" Kreutzcr Sonata" a semitone higher 
throughout. (Beethoven similarly 
transposed his own concerto in C to 
C# at a rehearsal.)

original version of Bruckner's sym- 
phonies by the Musikwissentschaft- 
liche Verlag, Vienna, led to a con- 
troversy as to whether the previously 
known copies had been indefensibly 
altered and ed. by his pupils Ferdi- 
nand Loewe and the brothers Franz 
and Josef Schalk, But evidence was 
adduced to show that B. approved 
these changes. 

His choral works include three 
Grand Masses, a "Te Deum," a 
Requiem, motets, psalms, and vari- 
ous church music, pcs. for male 
chorus. C. also a stnng quintet. 
The fame of B. has grown to great 
proportions since his death, not only 
in Germany and Austria, where he is 
considered a classic in the great line 
of Romantic composers, but also in 
other countries. An International 
Bruckner Soc. devotes itself to fur- 
thering perfs. of his music. The best 
passages in his works are undoubt- 
edly of noble fervour and breadth, 
some even approaching sublimity, 
but other pages are clumsy, repeti- 
tious, and lacking in contrast. The 
influence of Wagner is evident m Eis

Debussy (dtt-btt'-s6), Claude Achilla,

Paris, March 26, 1918; one of the 
most important composers of recent 
times, and the instigator of the entire 
/'modern" movement in music; al- 
ready acknowledged to be a classic, 
D. has had a profound influence on 
creative musicians of every country. 
He came from a family of trades- 
people with no musical background. 
At ii he entered the Paris Cons. 
where he won several prizes for piano 
and studied with Massenet, winning 
the Prix de Rome with his cantata., 
"L 9 Enfant Prodigue." During his 
sojourn in Italy, his originality began 
to assert itself, so much so that his 
orch. suite, "Printemps," shocked the 
conservatives by its harmonic audac- 
ities; he also c, a work for two women 
soloists and female chorus, "La 
Demoiselle j/," at this time. 
Returning to Paris, he was attracted

by the school of the poetic Symbol- 
ists and frequented their circle, com- 
posing meanwhile his "Arabesques" 
lor piano, "Suite Bergamasque" (do.)> 
"Ariettes Qublites," etc. 
His early works were influenced by 
the French school of Massenet, Cha- 
brier, Lalo, Faur, and by "Wagner, 
but he soon developed an original 
style which came to be known as 
. "impressionism" and consisted in 
painting with brilliant but rare and 
elusive tonal colours, applied in little* 
independent units, as the painters 
of the "pointillist" school were doing. 
His Prelude to "UApres-widi d'un 
Faune" based on Mallarm's cryptic 
nature poem, was completed 1804 
and created a deep impression, en- 
tirely revising the possibilities con- 
tained in orchestral tone-colour, D*s- 
use of distantly related overtones 
widened harmonic boundaries, and 
his use of chords not as a part of a 
continuous structure, but as in- 
dividual entities introduced a new 
principle into modern music. 
He carried on this revolutionary 
work with a string quartet (2803), 
"Proses Lyriqucs" for voice to his 
own text, the "Chansons de Bilttis*"* 
and the 3 "Nocturnes" for orch. 
("Clouds" "Festivals" and "Sirens?* 
the last employing a wordless 
women's chorus.) 

XXs. masterpiece is commonly ac- 
knowledged to be his music drama. 
"PeUeas e$ MelisandeS* a setting of 
Maeterlinck's symbolic play, which 
had its premiere at the Paris Op.- 
Comique in 1902 before a somewhat 
irreverent audience. Here, as in 
most of his works, D. creates an 
atmosphere of half-lights, mystery 
and poetry by the use of an original 
harmonic system in which dissonance 
takes the place of consonance; old 
church modes are used or suggested; 
as are the whole- tone scale and other 
eacotic progressions. The voices em- 
ploy a form of recitative; all climaxes 
are rijjidly restrained. The popular 
following developed by this singular 
but highly artistic work came a few 
years later. 

The most important productions of 
I>'s. final period include music for 
D'Annunaio's "mystery " " The Mar- 
tyrdom of Si. Sebastian*'; the ballet 
**Jeux t n written for Diaghileff's com- 
pany; and the notable ordbu works, 



"La Mer," "Rondes de Printemps** 
and "Iberia" in which his original 
art of novel form, orchestration and 
objectivity of impression reach their 
climax. His final period saw the 
production of many works for cham- 
ber combinations, piano, etc., but 
with a slight growth of austerity in 
his manner. 

His compositions include also: (voice 
and orch.) "Le Jet d'Eau"; (vocal 
quartet) "Trois Chansons"*, (orch.) 
"Images"; (Harp and orch.) "Danse 
Sacree ft Danse Profane"; (voice)

of the most eooanent of musicians and 
the chief contrapuntist of his day; 
pupil of OJkeghem; 1471-84 a singer 
in the Sistine Chapel, and about 
1488 in Ferrara; he was already now 
accepted as "princeps musicorum," 
and nad international vogue. He was 
received with honour by various 
princes, and was court-musician to 
Louis XII. , many amusing anecdotes 
of his musical humour being told. He 
finally returned to Cond as Provost 
of the Cathedral Chapter, Burney 
called him "the father of modern 
harmony.** The florid and restless 
cpt. of his church-works and the sec- 
ular canius jirmus (v. D. B.) that was 
the basis of most of them, brought 
his school irxto disfavour and disuse 
when the revolutionary Palestrina ap- 
peared. But he was at least the cul- 
mination of his style, and his erudition 
was moulded into suave and emo- 
tional effects, so that Ambros says 
that he was the "first musician who 
impresses us as being a genius. '* His 
period coinciding with the use of 
movable types for music, his works 
are preserved in large quantities xa 
volumes and in the collections of Pe~ 
trucci and Peu linger. His French 
chansons were pub. by T. Su&ato,

Moscow, Jan. 1 1 , 1 83 7 ; a great though 
gentle revolutionist of music, to whom 
much of Chopin's glory belongs, for 
Field developed the more lyric man- 



ner of pf. -playing and^ carried it into 
his composition, in which he gave the 
piano-song or poem, its first escape 
from the old stiff forms. He created 
the Nocturne, and many of his 
comps. in this form have practically 
every quality and mannerism charac- 
teristic of those of Chopin, who 
excelled him in passion, resource, and 
harmonic breadth. He was the son 
of a violinist, and grandson and pupil 
of an organist, who compelled him 
to practise so hard that he ran away, 
but was brought back and later was 
apprenticed to Clementi as a sales- 
man. He also had lessons from C., 
and went with him to Paris in 1802, 
making a great stir with his interpre- 
tation of Bach's and Handel's fugues; 
he was kept at his salesman's tasks 
till 1804, when he settled at St. 
Petersburg as a teacher and pianist 
of great vogue. After touring Rus- 
sia, in London, 1832, he played a 
concerto of his own at the Philh.;

Intemperance and fistula kept him

whence he was rescued by a Russian

Moscow, playing in Vienna with 
greatest succ.; but his health was 
lost and he died a few years later 
and was buried in Moscow. Besides

so named by Field) he c. 7 concertos 
(No. 4 in E flat the most popular);

A peculiarly lovable figure in music, 
F. has gained a great discipleship 
since his death both among musicians 
and the general public. His mod- 
esty and nobility of soul were allied 
with a highly original musical equip- 
ment, in which the sensuous and 
mystical elements are balanced by a 
strong sense of form. He entirely 
revolutionised the pattern of French 
instrumental music by reviving the 
polyphony which had long ceased 
to be a prominent factor in it; his 
harmonic modulations were also 
much freer than those previously 
in vogue in France. Through his 
disciple, d'Indy, he set in motion a 
whole school of "Franckists," who 
were opposed in aim to the extreme 
modernists who took their start from 
Debussy. These two tendencies are 
still warring in French music. (See

<*luck (glook), (i) Christoph Wilibald 
(Bitter von), Weidenwang, near Neu- 
markt, Upper Palatinate, July 2, 
1714 Vienna, Nov. 15, 1787; son of 
tead-gamekeeper to Prince Lobko- 
witz; at twelve sent to the Jesuit 
Coll. at Komotau (1726-32), where 
he learnt the violin, clayecin, and 
organ, and was chorister in the Ch. 
of St. Ignaz; at eighteen he went to 
Prague, earning a living by playing 
at rural dances, giving concerts and 
singing and playing in various 
churches; under the tuition of Father 
Czernohorsky he mastered singing 
and the 'cello, his favourite instr.; 
1736 entered the service of Prince 
Melzi, Vienna, who took him to 
Milan and had him study harm, and 
cpt. with Sammartini. After four 
years' study he prod. "Artaserse" 
(La Scala, 1741) with great succ. and 
was commissioned to c. for other 
theatres; prod. 8 operas 1742-45. 
On invitation he went to London 
1745 as comp os erf or the Hay market, 
in opposition to HandeL "La Ca- 
duca dei Giganti" was given on the 
defeat of the Pretender, 1746, 



"Artamene" followed by "Piramp 8 
Tisbe" a pasticcio of his best arias, 
had no succ. and led Handel to say 
that the music was detestable, and 
that Gluck knew no more counter- 
point than his cook. The operas G. 
had written up to this time were 
thoroughly Italian. The influence 
of Handel and Rameau's works heard 
at Paris awakened him, and led him 
to that gradual reform which made 
him immortal, though it brought on 
him the most ferocious opposition. 
"La S emir amide Riconosciuta" (Vi- 
enna, 1748) began the change to 
more serious power. 1750-62 he 
prod. "Telemaco" (Rome, 1750), 
"La Clemenza di Tito" (Naples, 
1751), and 4 others. 175464 he 
was dir. court-opera Vienna ana 
prod. 6 more works. He made great 
succ. in spite of opposition with 
"Orfeo ed Euridice" (1762), "Alceste"* 
(1767), "Paride ed Elena" (i76p), 
libretti by Calzabigi. 2 other in- 
ferior works were performed by 
members of the royal family (1765). 
In the dedicatory prefaces to "Al- 
ceste" and "Paride ed Elena," G. 
expressed his protest against the 
Italian school, and declared for 
dramatic consistency unhampered by 
rigid formulae for arias, duets, etc., 
and interpolated cadenzas. He had 
such harsh criticism at home and 
such encouragement from du Rollet 
pf the French Embassy at Vienna 
in 1772 that he went to Paris. But 
here also he met such opposition 
that all his diplomacy and all the 
power of his former pupil, Queen 
Marie Antoinette, hardly availed to 
bring about the presentation of 
"Iphigenie en Aulide" (1774); its 
great succ. was repeated in "Or- 
phet" (Aug., i 7 74),"^fcfc" (1776), 
and "Armide" (1777). Piccinni was 
brought to Paris as a rival, and prod. 
"Roland" while Gluck was preparing 
the same subject. Gluck burned his 
score and published a letter which 
precipitated an unimaginably fierce 
war of pamphlets. Both men now 
set to composing "Iphigenie en Tau- 
tide"\ here Gluck forestalled his rival 
by two years (1779), and Piccinni's 
work on appearing was not a succ., 
while Gluck' s succeeded enormously. 
His last opera, "Echo et Narcisse"- 
was not succ. (Sept. 21, 1779); I 78o, 
he retired to Vienna and lived on his

"Le Vendemmiatrice" was succ. 
1765, but reading Monsigny's "Rose 
et Colas" he decided that his restless 
dramatic longings were best adapted 
for French op&ra comique. He was a 
long time finding a fit librettist (Vol- 
taire declining his invitation). He 
reached Paris slowly via Geneva, 
where he taught singing a year and 
prod, the succ, i-act "Isabella et 
Gertrude." In Paris after 2 years' 
hardships his "Les Mariages Sam- 
nites" was rehearsed, and though not 
prod., won him a patron in Count 
Creutz, the Swedish Minister, who 
secured him as libretto MarmontePs 
comedy "Le Huron." This was 
prod. (Op.-com., 1768) with a great 
succ., enjoyed also in extraordinary 
degree by an astounding series of 
works, mostly comic and mostly suc- 
cessful, the best of which are "Lu- 
cile," "Le Tableau Parian?* (1760), 
"Les Deux Avares," "Zemire et

Halle, Feb. 23, 1685 London, April 
14, 1759; son of a barber (afterwards 
surgeon and valet to the Prince of 
Saxe-Magdeburg) and his second 
wife Dorothea Taust. Intended for 
a lawyer; in spite of bitter opposition 
he secretly learned to play a dumb 
spinet. At 7 on a visit to his elder 
step-brother, valet at the court of 
Saxe-Weissenf els, Handel while play- 
ing the chapel-organ was heard by 
the Duke, who persuaded the father 
to give the boy lessons. Zachau, 
organist of Halle, taught him cpt., 
canon and fugue, and he practised 
the oboe, spinet, harpsichord and 
organ; he soon c. sonatas for 2 oboes 
and bass, became assist, organist, 
and for 3 years wrote a motet for 
every Sunday. In 1696 his skill on 
organ and harpsichord won him at 
Berlin the friendship of Ariosti and 
the jealousy of Bononcini. The 
Elector offered to send him to Italy; 
but his father took him back to 
Halle; the next year his father died, 
and he went to Halle Univ. (1702- 
03) to study law, at the same time 
serving as organist at the cathedral 
at a salary of $50 a year. 1703 he 
went to Hamburg as molino di 
ripieno. He fought a duel with 
Mattheson, later his friend and 
biographer, and was saved by a but- 
ton. When Keiser the dir. fled from 
debt, H- was engaged as clavecinist. 
He c. a "Passion" and prod. 2 op- 
eras, "Almira" (succ.) and " Nero"> 
(1705); he was also commissioned to 
write "Florindo und Daphne" (1708), 
an opera filling two evenings. In 
1706, with 200 ducats earned by 
teaching, he went to Ttaly and made 
success and powerful acquaintances. 



incl. the Scarlattis. In Florence 
(1707) he prod, with succ. "Rodrigo" 
(Venice, 1708), and "Agrippina" 
with great succ. In Rome he prod. 
2 oratorios, and in Naples a serenata, 
"Act, Galatea e Polifemo," in which 
is a bass solo with a compass of 2 oc- 
taves and a fifth. 1709, in Germany 
as cond. to the Elector of Hanover; 
1710 visited England on leave of ab- 
sence. In 2 weeks he c. the opera 
"Rinaldo," a pasticcio of his older 
songs. It was prod, at the Hay- 
market Th. with great succ.; 1712 he 
returned to London on leave; but 
stayed. His first two operas were 
not succ.; but an ode for the Queen's 
birthday, and a Te Deum and Jubi- 
late in celebration of the Peace of 
Utrecht won him royal favour and 
an annuity of 200; 1714 his Han- 
over patron became George I. of 
England, and he was for a time out 
of that monarch's good graces, but 
had already been restored when, at 
the request of Baron Kilmanseck, 
he produced the delightful 25 pieces 
called the "Water-Music," at a royal 
aquatic f&te. 1716-18 he went to 
Hanover with the King. He there 
c. his only German oratorio, the 
"Passion"; 1718 cond. to the Duke 
of Chandos and c. the English ora- 
torio "Esther," the secular oratorio 
"Ads and Galatea" and the Chandos 
Te Deums and Anthems. He taught 
the Prince of Wales' daughters, and 
c. for Princess Anne "Suites de 
Pieces" for harpsichord (The Les- 
sons) including "The Harmonious 
Blacksmith." 

He was dir. of new R. A. of M. 
1720 prod, the succ. opera "Rada- 
misto" (prod. 1721 in Hamburg as 
"Zenolia"). Now Bononcini and 
Ariosti appeared as rivals and a fa- 
mous and lasting feud arose around 
the three after they had prod, one 
opera, "Muzio Scaevola" in which 
each wrote an act. B. had rather 
the better of it, when he was caught 
in a plagiarism (a crime not un- 
known in Handel's works (v. LOTTI}. 
B. left England without reply (1731). 
Up to this time H. had prod. 12 
operas. 

1726 he was naturalised. 1729-31 
he was in partnership with Heidegger, 
proprietor of the King's Th., where 
he prod. "Lotario" followed by 4 
more operas. 1732 he prod, his two

who also wrote the text of the Messiah. 
1741 he visited Dublin and prod,

from bankruptcj-. It was followed by 
"Samson," the "Dettingen Te De- 
urn," "Semele," "Joseph" (1743), 
"Belshazzar," and "Heracles" (17^).

Haydn (hid'-'n), (i) (Fz.) Josef, Roh-

second son of a wheelwright who was 
the sexton and organist of the village 
church, and a fine tenor, and whose 
wife, Maria Koler, had served as 
cook for Count Harrach. She sang 
in the choir. At 5, H. was taken to 
the home of a paternal cousin, 
Frankh, who taught him Latin, sing- 
ing, the vln. and other instrs. He 
was engaged as a chorister for St. 
Stephen's, and taught by Reutter the 
cond., who gave him no encourage- 
ment and dismissed him in 1748. 
At 8, he went to Vienna, and studied 
singing, vln. and clavier, with 
Finsterbusch and Gegenbauer. He 
studied harmony chiefly from Fux' 
"Gradus ad Parnassum" and Mat- 
theson's "Volkommener Kappell- 



meister." At 13 he c. a mass. He 
obtained a few pupils, and a Vien- 
nese tradesman lent him 150 florins, 
with which he rented an attic-room 
and an old harpsichord. He prac- 
tised C. P. E. Bach's first 6 sonatas 
and the vln.; Metastasio taught him 
Italian, and recommended him to a 
Spanish family as teacher for their 
daughter, who was studying with 
Porpora. From Porpora, in return 
for menial attentions, H. received 
some instruction in comp. and a 
recommendation to the Venetian 
ambassador for a stipend of 50 francs 
a month. At 20, he had c. 6 trios, 
sonatas, his first mass, and a comic 
opera "Der neue krumme Teufel" 
(Stadttheater, i75 2 )> a satire on the 
lame baron Affligi the ct.-opera dir.; 
this work was suppressed but revived 
afterwards, and he received 24 ducats 
for it. He began to make powerful 
friends, and became Musikdirektor 
and Kammercompositeur to Count 
Fd. Maximilian Morzin. 1 759 Prince 
Paul Anton EsterMzy heard his ist 
symph. and 1760 took him into his 
service as 2d (later ist) conductor; 
the same year H. m. Maria Anna, the 
elder sister of the girl whom he loved 
and who had entered a convent. 
This marriage was as unhappy as 
one would expect. Prince Nikolaus 
Esterhdzy, who succeeded his bro. in 
1762, retained H. as conductor and 
in his service H. c. 30 symphonies, 
40 quartets, a concerto for French 
horn, 1 2 minuets, most of his operas, 
etc. He was soon very pop. through 
Europe, and royalty sent him gifts. 
1785 commissioned to write a mass, 
"The Seven Words on the Cross," for 
the Cath. of Cadiz; in 1790 Prince 
Nikolaus ^as succeeded by his son 
Anton, who kept H. as cond. and 
increased his stipend of 1,000 florins 
to 1,400. In 1791 on a pressing in- 
vitation brought by Salomon, he 
went to England and was for 18 
months the lion of the season. Ox- 
ford made him Mus. Doc.; and he c. 
the so-called "Salomon Symphonies" 
xor nis concerts. On his way home, 
he visited his native place to witness 
the unveiling of a monument erected 
in his honour by Count Harrach. In 
this year Beethoven became his pu- 
pil. 1794, he revisited London, with 
renewed triumph, the King urging 
him to stay, but, at the invitation of

anthem. At 65, he prod, his great 
oratorio "The Creation" ("Die Sch'dp-

went into retirement, appearing in 
public only once in 1808, when he 
was carried in a chair to hear a 
special performance of the "Crea- 
tion."* His agitation was so great 
that he had to be taken away after 
the first half; the throng giving him 
a sad farewell, and Beethoven bend- 
ing to kiss his hands and forehead. 
In 1809, his death was hastened by 
the shock of the bombardment of 
Vienna by the French. His astound-

Abbandonata" (1770), " Demofo'dnte"* 
1770), and "Ifigenia in Tauride"* 
(1771), were failures when prod, at 
Naples. The humiliation after such 
long triumph brought on apoplexy 
(i773)j from which he recovered 
only long enough to write a cantata 
on the birth of a prince, and his 
masterpiece, a "Miserere." The 
King of Portugal commissioned him
